Synopsis

The Quarry by Johan Theorin

How close can you get to the truth...before you become the target?

Jerry Morner lives quietly in a cabin by the old quarry, hurting no one. Or that’s what he wants people to believe. It takes one spark and a can of petrol to expose the truth.

The fire is deadly. Not for Jerry, but for the two strangers found burnt to death inside.

His son starts to search for answers. But he soon realises that some secrets are better left to the dead.

About the Author

Throughout his life, Johan Theorin has been a regular visitor to the Baltic island of Oland. His mother’s family – sailors, fishermen and farmers - have lived there for centuries, nurturing the island’s rich legacy of strange tales and folklore. A journalist by profession, Johan now lives in Gothenburg. He is currently working on his second novel, and is planning a quartet of novels all set on Oland.

Echoes from the Dead (originally published in Sweden as Skumtimmen) is Johan’s first novel. In 2007 it was voted Best First Crime Novel by the authors and critics of the Swedish Academy of Crime, and it has been sold in sixteen countries. His second novel, The Darkest Room, (in Swedish Nattfak) was voted the Best Swedish Crime Novel of 2008.
